Re: Linux?

I believe that FreeBSD has an open source FTDI USB driver, and because of that, it should be possible to port it to other operating systems. Perhaps THAT is part of the solution?

This also opens up the need for a generic USERLAND 'libusb' equivalent for Windows... in fact, how about USERLAND DRIVERS for all KINDS of things that FreeBSD and Linux both have (like Fuse FS, for starters), but in Windows, so we don't have to rely on *SIGNED* kernel drivers any more...
